Course Description

General French

Intensive French Programme

This course offers you the opportunity to learn how to speak French in optimal conditions. Many structured oral activities, from audio comprehension, to functional grammar, but also written comprehension and production.

Super Intensive French Programme

This course is designed for students who want to take full advantage of their stay in Nice.

The course combines the Intensive French Programme with additional lessons, where oral communication and grammar structures are reinforced.

Preparation Courses for DELF / DALF / TCF
These courses are designed for students preparing for the DELF A1-A2 or the DALF C1 and C2. These certificates are often a requirement for people wanting to attend a French university, therefore a very high level of oral and written French is a prerequisite for the course.
Individual Courses

These lessons are often the choice of business people who want to optimize their time as much as possible and interact face to face with the professor at a very high intensity.

It is the most motivational course for students that have only one week or two to spend on learning French.

Combined Courses

The course combines the dynamics of a collective program with the benefits of a one-to-one tuition.

Teenage Summer Campus

IH Nice Summer Campus is the new summer residence for teenagers. Located close to the airport, and the beach, the campus includes accommodation for 140 students and features a cafeteria and numerous classrooms.

For more than 20 years the school has welcomed teenagers all year round. Students come mainly from Italy, Russia, USA, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and New Zealand. This program gives these young people the chance to have direct contact with France and French people.

Home Tutoring

This course consists of staying at a teacher’s house, allowing students to study in the comfort of a home environment. It is ideal as the students can communicate in French all the time and learn about French culture and traditions.


The students have the possibility to choose their accommodation:

Homestay: students live with local residents. Your host family can be a “traditional” one, a single parent, an elderly

person or a single. In selecting host families, our priority is that the host appreciates receiving foreign students and enjoys their company. Host families can host from 1 to 4 students: the kitchen and bathroom are shared.
